E. M. Forster had something aesthetic in mind with that famous phrase, but it applies as well to more practical or material kinds of systems, networks, and patterns in American fiction, from the whaling industry in Moby-Dick (and the Pequod as metonym for that industry) to the various networks - transportation, financial, criminal, political, logistical, electronic - explored in the work of writers like Frank Norris, Philip K. Dick, Don DeLillo, Thomas Pynchon, William Vollmann, and Jonathan Bayliss.

This multidisciplinary publication brings together leading scholars and practitioners, to explore what pulse phonation is, what it can do, and how it can be framed as a cultural phenomenon. This volume will draw on a broad range of approaches, from psycholinguistics and vocal training to new materialism and queer theory. By fusing critical theoretical approaches with performance, the book will consider the processes of production and perception of pulse phonation, its uses, and meanings in contemporary culture, music, theatre, and performance art, and the place it occupies in a broader reflection on voice and sound production. The book will conclude with a series of interviews and short statements from users and listeners of creaky voices.

As of March 2021, a year after the United States first entered nation-wide lockdowns in response to the global spread of COVID-19, the National Center for Health Statistics reported a 30% increase in drug overdose deaths across the country. Antidepressant, anti-anxiety, and insomnia prescriptions have also hit record highs. Now public health bodies are embarking on the most ambitious vaccination campaign in US history. Living through the chronic sequelae of these interlocking (and still unfolding) crises is bearable only by recourse to a pharmaceutical fix.

CALL FOR PAPERS: “We’re Going Virtual”: A Children’s Literature Association Quarterly Special Issue

Tuesday, November 16, 2021 - 9:06am
Kyle Eveleth / Otterbein University
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, November 1, 2022

The concept of virtual worlds, while not new, has become a normalized part of 21st-century consciousness in the wake of the worldwide novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Once a realm reserved for playful escape, “dissolv[ing] the constraints of the anchored world so that we can lift anchor—not to drift aimlessly without point, but to explore anchorage in ever-new places” (Heim, 1993), virtual spaces have taken center stage in our everyday lives. Our meeting places, our workplaces, our places of learning, even the places where we unite to break bread have shifted from the physical realm to the virtual.

(ACLA 2022) The Elemental and The Formless--DEADLINE EXTENDED

updated: 
Monday, November 15, 2021 - 4:45pm
Oliver Aas (Cornell University)
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, November 30, 2021

This seminar departs from the idea that we need a clearer understanding of elemental forms—traditional and non-traditional—that are in different stages of becoming formless (loss, disappearance, transmutation etc.). On the one hand, we build up on the critical genealogy of the formless (l’informe), a concept once popularized by Bataille in the surrealist journal Documents (1929-30) and later taken up by Bataille’s readers, most famously by Rosalind Krauss & Yves-Alain Bois (1997) and Georges Didi-Huberman (1995). While, on the other hand, we also welcome proposals that conceptualize the formless through different disciplinary vantage points and bring it to bear on the question of elemental forms.

Challenging Williams

The forthcoming WCW Society Biennial Conference invites papers on an intentionally diverse range of topics, with the goal of seeking places and poems in Williams’s oeuvre where a (re)evaluation may be fruitful. In what ways does Williams's work continue to challenge us as readers, scholars, persons? Conversely, how may we be drawn or compelled to challenge Williams's work, as readers, scholars, persons?

Plural / Pluriel
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, June 30, 2022

Pluralism is a very central but elusive contemporary value. Pluralism is the belief that diversity is beneficial to society. Most of us would agree, but what does diversity exactly mean? How to measure it and tell whether a society is more or less diverse?

Cultural pluralism, political pluralism and value pluralism all have slightly different meanings, but they all share the belief that coexistence of diverse opinions, ways of life and value systems is enriching for all members of a society.
